Sunglasses can be worn all year round !

Are you one to associate sunglasses with summer? Well, that is a misconception! Decent eye protection is even more essential in winter, as the sun is lower throughout this season, which is more blinding and therefore more aggressive to the eyes.

Don’t be fooled by the winter’s white coat of snow that’s so beautiful to glance at. Snow reflects the sun’s UV rays, which are very harmful for your eyes. UV rays can cause many eye problems such as cataracts, headaches, eye cancer, snow blindness and many other complications.

Take care of your eyes and make your pair of sunglasses a stylish accessory. There’s something for every taste, for every age and, above all, for every lifestyle. Optometrists at VU’s optometry will help you find a pair that’s trendy for the season and that perfectly suits you.
